Geotechnical engineering


Geotechnical engineering is concerned with the potential hazards associated with ground conditions, and reducing the risks to a project and its environment.  Our detailed geotechnical reports are based on a combination of advanced desk research with field and laboratory analysis techniques.

Our investigating engineers can assess possible constraints on the development of the site, the potential for contamination and its impact on land value, providing remediation strategies and geotechnical design for slopes, earthworks and foundations.
